I love wiggle dresses, however, my stomach is not flat enough and my thighs not smooth enough to pull them off. I'm not sure I could have even when I weighed significantly less than I do now. I was able to pull off my NYE dress solely because of a strategically placed peplum.
Today I finally "bit the bullet" (I'm cheap) and bought it. What convinced me was looking at other photos of the girdle; Amazon's product photo of it doesn't do it justice at all. Compare Amazon's product photo of it below (snooze!), with the image I shared above.
And the difference is not because Amazon only chooses to show the girdle in white; the girdle still looks hot in white, when photographed well, as evidenced by this image from Dollhouse Betty.
What really won me over though is the before and after photos I found of ladies wearing the girdle.

It seems to be priced pretty consistently from site to site; I've seen the price only vary from $53-60. The cheapest that I found my size was $56, however, I decided to go with Amazon where it was $60 because it includes free shipping (and free returns). The reviews I read said that the girdle runs true to the size/measurement, which is a relief, and I hope it is true; I hate "vanity sizing" because it makes clothes shopping on-line impossible.
